When Tigger Socks are Outlawed . . .

21 Mar

Lisa and PigletMr Broke Hoedown (aka Collateral Damage) scooped me this morning on a Disney-related story: When Tigger socks are outlawed, only outlaws will wear cheerful Disney branded cloth on their feet.

Last year Toni Kay Scott, a student at Napa Valley’s Redwood Middle School, was sent to an in-school suspension program (with the wonderfully Orwellian-name of Students With Attitude Problems). Her crime? Violating a dress code by wearing socks with Tigger on them, along with a denim skirt and a brown shirt with a pink border.

Now really, what’s up with Tigger always being involved somehow when kids are getting into trouble? Dude’s got a serious problem with authority. You never hear Piglet’s name getting kicked around when someone’s misbehaving, now do you?
